A man punched a landlord after being asked to leave his pub – and lost half of his clothes in the struggle.
Half-naked David Broadhead then headed to a pal’s house, leaving his clothing and mobile phone behind.
He had moments earlier been caught urinating outside the George Inn in Upper Denby.
The 35-year-old pleaded guilty to assault when he appeared at Kirklees Magistrates’ Court.
The court heard that drunk Broadhead had been asked to leave following his involvement in a commotion inside the pub on March 14.
Rory Byrne, prosecuting, said: “The landlord brought him outside, leaving him in the smoking shelter.
“When he returned he found the defendant still there and urinating in the shelter.”
This time the landlord tried to move Broadhead further away from the pub to the car park, the Huddersfield court heard.
Mr Byrne said: “The defendant turned around and punched him in the face.
“The landlord took him to the floor and there was a struggle.
“Broadhead managed to escape from his upper garments, which were left at the scene with his phone.”
Mohammed Arif, mitigating, said that his client had been drinking throughout the course of the day.
There was then an incident in the pool room of the pub involving other customers and Broadhead was escorted outside.
Mr Arif said: “It’s clear Mr Broadhead’s lashed out and punched the complainant.
“He’s run off and a number of people were chasing him.
“He ended up half-naked as he’s slipped out of his clothing to go to a friend’s house nearby.”
The court heard that the incident was Broadhead’s fourth offence where drink had played a part.
But Broadhead, of Thorn Avenue, Thornhill, Dewsbury, denied that he had a drink issue.
District Judge Michael Fanning labelled his behaviour as “unforgiveable.”
He ordered a report from probation staff prior to Broadhead’s sentencing.
